BACKGROUND: Arteriovenous (AV) fistula thrombosis is a serious complication in patients undergoing hemodialysis, often presenting with symptoms of venous hypertension, failure to dialysis and uremic symptoms. Treatment is aimed to provide symptomatic relief and to maintain hemodialysis access site patency. AIM: To describe our initial experience in the endovascular treatment of lower limb AV dialysis access (AV fistula) thrombosis and/or obstruction in patients undergoing hemodialysis...

Primary percutaneous coronary intervention is the current standard of care in ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). However, large thrombus is an independent predictor for stent thrombosis and major adverse cardiac events in patients undergoing primary angioplasty for STEMI. Here we report a series of STEMI patients with large thrombus burden treated successfully with low dose intracoronary thrombolysis. There was prompt and early ST resolution. There was improvement in thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) flow and myocardial blush grade postlysis in all patients...

EDITORIAL
Ozcan Ozeke, Serkan Cay, Firat Ozcan, Serkan Topaloglu, Dursun Aras
The evidence-based medicine is rooted in the scientific truth. Oxford Dictionaries has released its 2016 word of the year: "Post-truth," which they define as "relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief". In everything from climate change denial to the anti-vaccine movement, we're seeing the consequences of a failure to engage with scientific evidence. Fake news and post-truth pronouncements are increasingly common in social media and political era and are unfortunately also progressively being applied to the medical science...

REVIEW
V K Shah, K K Shalia
Return of blood flow after periodic ischemia is often accompanied by myocardial injury, commonly known as lethal reperfusion injury (RI). Experimental studies have shown that 50% of muscle die of ischemia and another 50% die because of reperfusion. It is characterized by myocardial, vascular, or electrophysiological dysfunction that is induced by the restoration of blood flow to previously ischemic tissue. This phenomenon reduces the efficiency of the present modalities used to combat the ischemic myocardium...

Sangeeta Dhir, Viveka Kumar
This study investigated the associations between cardiovascular risk parameters, glycemic level and periodontitis in the diabetic adult population. BMI (body mass index), total cholesterol and triglyceride was used as cardiovascular risk measure and glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) was recorded for glycemic levels. Study results provide evidence of significant association between periodontal disease, cardiovascular risk and glycemic levels.

BACKGROUND: We evaluated the clinical presentation and risk factors of pulmonary embolism (PE) in soldiers posted at high altitude areas (HAA). METHODS: We conducted a retrospective analysis of all cases of PE presented to us between March 2011 and Aug 2014. The patients were serving at an altitude between 10,000 and 22,000ft above sea level and PE was diagnosed using the pulmonary CT angiography. Screening for the deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and procoagulant conditions was done at presentation and after six months of treatment...

OBJECTIVE: Arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy (ACM) is not an uncommon cause of cardiac morbidity in Kashmir valley. This study was designed to document various clinical features and to sequence exons 11 and 12 of plakophilin 2 (PKP2) gene in these patients. METHODS: ACM patients who attended cardiology outpatient department of our institute from January 2014 to April 2015 were included in the study. Their records were reviewed. Controls were randomly selected, who had no history or family history of cardiac illness and had a normal cardiac examination...

BACKGROUND: Brugada syndrome (BrS) is an inherited electroclinical syndrome and can be occasionally precipitated by fever. The prevalence of Brugada-type electrocardiographic patterns (BTEP) due to febrile illnesses have not been previously studied in India. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between June 2014 and December 2015, 525 consecutive patients admitted to a government hospital with acute febrile illness were retrospectively enrolled. In addition to their investigations for workup of fever, ECGs were analyzed and BTEP types 1 and 2 were noted...

BACKGROUND: We examined the effect of radiofrequency (RF) catheter ablation of premature ventricular complexes (PVCs) on left ventricle (LV) function recovery in patients with LV dysfunction, regardless the presence of structural heart disease (SHD). METHODS: Seventy seven patients with impaired LV ejection fraction (EF) (37.1±9.4), suspected to have PVCs cardiomyopathy (PVC-CM) (>10% PVCs burden), referred for RF ablation were enrolled, and divided into 2 groups according to the presence of SHD...

BACKGROUND: "Coronary slow flow'' (CSF) is delayed vessel opacification in the absence of epicardial stenosis. Studies in different ethnic groups have found variable risk factors associated with CSF. AIM: of present study was to analyze the risk factors and angiographic profile of CSF in North Indian population, not studied till date. METHODS: 40 patients with CSF and 40 controls were studied. CSF was determined quantitatively by thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) frame count method...

OBJECTIVE: To study the incidence and predictors of Contrast induced nephropathy (CIN) in high risk patients undergoing coronary angioplasty. To study the applicability of the Mehran Risk Score (MRS) in the prediction of CIN in our population. METHODS: This was a prospective observational study where patients with an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) between 30 and 60ml/mt undergoing elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) over a period of 15 months were evaluated prospectively for the development of CIN...

BACKGROUND: Syntax 1 and recently Syntax 2 (SS2) scores are validated risk prediction models in coronary disease. OBJECTIVES: To find out the long term outcomes following stenting for unprotected left main bifurcation disease (LMD) and to validate and compare the performance of the SYNTAX scores 1 and 2 (SS1 and SS2 PCI) for predicting major adverse cardiac events (MACE) in Indian population. METHODS: Single-center, retrospective, observational study involving patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with at least one stent implanted for the LMD...
